going to be huge, alex. it was thursday when republicans gathered out in sterling, virginia, and they unveiled their pledge to america. not to say a contract with america. a lot of people, include something conservatives, criticized it as being light on the details. but the political reality is how much detail do they really need to vat this point. they're almost running a front-runner campaign. but now they have this manifesto to guard themselves against the charge of being the party of no. they want to repeal and replace health care. they want more small business deductions. they want a free spending in 2008 levels. today the communications director here posted a blog post pointing out that that would mean the cutting of many head start children from the head start program. some 3,000 correctional officers from federal facilities around the country. 2700 fbi agents and this morning, the president in his web address had the following to say about gop plans. >> it's grounded in the same warn-out philosophy. cut taxes for millionaires and billionaires, cut the rules for wall

care this past week. here is the president speaking in falls church, virginia, on wednesday. >> and health care was one of those issues that we could no longer ignore. we couldn't ignore it because the cost of health care has been escalating faster than just about anything else. and i don't need to tell you all that. even if you have health insurance, you've seen your co-payments, your premiums skyrocket. even if you get health care from your employer, that employer's costs have skyrocketed and they're starting to pass more and more of those costs on to their employers. more people don't get health care from their employers and in addition what you are seeing was that at the state level and at the federal level, the costs of health care -- because people weren't getting it on the job and were trying to get it through the c.h.i.p. program or medicaid or disability or what have you, all those costs were driving our government bank ruptd. >> welt, president obama signed the new health care reform act six months ago. several major portions of the new law went into effect thursda
a lot to actually gallon virginia nice the left. in fact yesterday at a chamber luncheon in anchorage, berkowitz reached out and endorsed her. the folk that are coming around here are not perceived as conservative, but they have policies of the past rather than recognizing the situation we are in right now. jenna: let's talk a little bit about the two party system. you've called yourself a constitutional conservative. do you believe the way the government is running right now with the two party system is the way that the founders intended it to run or is this country at a political crossroads today. >> it's at a political crossroads in the sense that this nation as a whole, not only here in ask but in many other states week nicest that we cannot go forward with the system we have in great, growing government, growing fiscal debts that are making the country financially. and it is time for one of the parties, and i think that is best placed in the republican party to catch that understanding and put into effect a system that reverses the growth of government. it's an opportunity to skh
that many had feared. north carolina governor bev purdue said her state dodged a bullet. virginia and maryland feeling the effects of earl. new york's eastern long island and massachusetts and cape cod in its sights. earl remains a powerful category 2 hurricane with sustained winds of 105 miles an hour. >> turning to politics now. arizona governor jan brewer calls it the longest 16 seconds of her life. if you haven't seen it, when you do you will understand what she is talking about. a televised debate that happened earlier in the woke. the governor delivered her opening statement. she was at an uncomfortable loss for words. here is a look. >> i have done so much and i just cannot believe that we have changed everything since i have become your governor in the last 600 days. arizona has been brought back from its abyss. we have cut the budget. we have balanced the budget. and we are moving forward. we have done everything that we could possibly do. we have -- did what was right for arizona. >> there was a lot more to the story than just the awkward silence there. christina boomer
to do that? i do not know that we do. host: rob on the republican line. arlington, virginia. caller: i want to start with a brief note of fairness for this sitting president, president barack obama. he did say afghanistan was the good war, he did say that on the campaign trail. for him to receive criticism about going back on a promise is wrong. he said he wanted to leave iraq and to work in afghanistan, which is what he is doing. as i see it, one of the few promis he kept. there were a lot of attacks since president obama became president in the green zone. there were eighin the month of june or something and the media has remained silent on that. if george bush were still president, they would be airing not constantly. it would be on all the front pages across the country. when you see an uptick of violence in the green zone, it may not be a good time to pull aout. it seems like amateur hour here. you could take all of the money spent, look at all the projects that have been completed -- massive amount of projects -- add it all up and it is about $35 billion. this is straight from th
says is entirely correct. there are democrats running on these principles we saw in west virginia, ellen mollohan was defeated in the primary, alverio ran on tea party principle, smaller government and fiscal restraint. so we are starting to see that shift that's that is going to correct on the democratic side. jenna: does that mean the tea party is about backing republicans? >> no, and to go with matt's earlier point that we just haven't been able to find democrats at the national level, and i would also caution that there are democrats out there, running as false conservatives, because their first goal as a politician is to get reelected and that's what we have to be careful of i think at the state level an certainly in new york and in the new york metro, we have many democrats who align with our principles, but if they want to run, their party will not let them identify with the tea party. jenna: david, let me stay with you for a second, because there's a lot that's been said about the tea party and who makes it up. in fact, colleen from madison, alabama, wrote us and asked who
